Does anybody know what to do if customs asks you to add 100 EUR for cost ? Ive bought the sennheiser 650 here and i had to add 700eur , the guys at the post office let it slip with 70 as they figured it was a mistake. But what happens if they dont let it slip ... Do you get your money back ? If you let it resended ?

Massdrop will put the value of whatever you ordered on the customs label. So if you spent $200 on keycaps, they'll declare it as that so you'll have to pay the customs fee depending on where you are. I'm in the UK and always get hit with it from MD. 20% (VAT) of value plus £8 fee in our case, it'll of course vary for other countries. You won't get a refund or anything, it's just one of the downsides to getting stuff from MD as an international buyer!

Well if they make a mistake and declare the value too high, then yeah that's a different scenario and I'm sure you could contact them to get some assistance. I've received 5/6 packages from MD and never had them declare incorrectly so hopefully your experience with the headphones was a one off.

i think ill maybe try to make orders , in split orders. So the amount stays beneath 50 eur so its not that heavily taxed by customs .... maybe thats something worth trying if you definitely want some keycaps
